An $80 million con is targeting public workers


As the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the anti-worker Janus v. AFSCME Council 31 case in February, a group of men in designer suits demonstrated with a deceptive message.

These men – sent by the billionaires and special interests bankrolling the lawsuit – held signs that read “Stand with Workers” while shouting anti-union slogans. No one was fooled.

Workers weren’t fooled a year earlier, either, when members of this same anti-union group crashed an orientation for new homecare providers.

“They were speaking to the (homecare) providers, telling them that they did not need to pay union dues – that they could put that money back in their pockets, that they could pay themselves, and that they would still receive the same benefits, which is a very untrue statement,” says worker Toni Monique Taloa, a member of United Domestic Workers/AFSCME Local 3930.
